Selectize.JS – jQuery based hybrid of a textbox and <select> box for tagging purpose with autocomplete and native-feeling keyboard navigation

Selectize is the hybrid of a textbox and <select> box. It’s jQuery-based and it’s useful for tagging, contact lists, country selectors, and so on

It clocks in at around ~7kb (gzipped). The goal is to provide a solid & usable user-experience with a clean and powerful API.

It’s a lot like Chosen, Select2, and Tags Input but with a few advantages. Developed by @brianreavis (partly at DIY). Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0… so do whatever you want with it!

Features

 

  • Smart Option Searching / Ranking
    Options are efficiently scored and sorted on-the-fly (using sifter). Want to search an item’s title and description? No problem.
  • Caret between items
    Order matters sometimes. Use the and arrow keys to move between selected items.
  • Select & delete multiple items at once
    Hold down option on Mac or ctrl on Windows to select more than one item to delete.

    Great for international environments.

    Interface with it and make modifications easily. Pull requests welcome!
